City Pulse

For all you bridezillas-to-be, you’re probably obsessing over the aesthetics of your big day: you’re thinking about your hair, your gown, your weight (and that one bridesmaid’s weight – yeah, I said it), the cake, the décor of the reception hall, and then some.

But lookey here, we all know you want to look glam and for every detail to be just-so, but the truth is, most of us aren’t just looking forward to seeing your picture-perfect self prancing down the aisle – we also came for the food, the dancing, possible dates, and the BOOZE. (Actually, if the only good thing you had to offer was the booze, then you’d be good to go in my book).

So here comes Hpnotiq, all dressed in blue. This French concoction is a heavenly blend of premium vodka, tropical fruit juices, and a hint of Cognac and is quickly gaining a reputation for being one of the most versatile mixable liqueurs on the market. It’s such a hot cocktail among A-list celebrities that even Jennifer Lopez clinked to it at her wedding. (With her record, there might be more future clinking).

So raise those glasses with that something blue and raise a whole lot more if you didn’t sign a pre-nup!


“The Something Blue”
2 oz. white wine
1 oz. ginger ale
(Serve in a Champagne flute.)

Other recipes:

1 ox. Super premium vodka
Splash of lemon juice
(Shake well with ice, strain into a martini glass. Garnish with a lemon slice.)

“Bubbles ‘n Blue”
2 oz. Champagne
(Pour chilled HPNOTIQ and Champagne into a Champagne flute.)
